“Cheetah female Nimali, jaguar female Laima, tiger lady Shilang, lioness Jawa, and also male bear Félix made the denim their favourite toys,” Ján Papač of the manifest 360 agency which came up with the idea, informed the TASR newswire. “They tore the cloth making holes in it, scratches and unique signs.”
The idea was to make non-traditional clothing, co-created by animals.
After several days, the denim was taken from the pens and given to fashion designer Lucia Spišáková who made the eight pairs of jeans, with a label of the animal which co-created them, on the back side.
The receipts will go back to the zoo, to help feed the beasts – as the yearly costs of keeping a jaguar are more than €1,100; of a tiger €1,300 and a lion €1,600.
